How can i paste text from a web site to an open office document as rtf?

i'm running firefox under windows 7. i'm unable to copy text from web pages to the clipboard as rtf formatted data. tried pasting into ms wordpad and open office 3.3 writer. ie allows pasting as rtf text, but i'd prefer using firefox. why is rtf not an available format?

  • How to copy and paste text from a web site viewed in Chrome using the Xperia z3v?

    I have searched high and low for a way to copy and paste text from a web site in Chrome using the Xperia z3v.  I've tried a long tap, a double tap, a triple tap - nothing works. I am able to select text, copy and paste it in a Word doc, however.  There must be some way to do this on a web site in Chrome. I'm certain I am not trying to select text that is really an image. I am trying to copy text. Here is the link where I'm trying to get the text. It's a recipe.http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ree-drummond/mushroom-pilaf.html#! Maybe I should try to get Firefox for smart phones and see if that works. Any ideas?Thank you!

  • How can I do to change the web site when I open a new tab.

    Dear Friends...
    I cant find information, how to changes the web site when I open a second tab. Example: when I open Firefox my home page is google and that is perfect but when I open a second tab, why appears yahoo as home page? I want to changes that and I cant find how to do it . Thanks

    The normal behavior is to open a blank tab, an add-on will be causing it to display Yahoo. One add-on that does this is the freeze net assistant, if you have that one you can uninstall it and it should revert to opening a blank tab.
    There are add-ons that let you specify what should open in a new tab, such as:
    * NewTabURL - https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/newtaburl
    * New Tab Homepage - https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/new-tab-homepage
    Another way of opening the home page in a new tab is to middle click on the home button in the navigation toolbar.

  • How can i paste text from Numbers too Pages without getting the box/frames?

    I have a big list in numbers with a lot of text in each line. I need to copy/paste it in to a pages document but i don't want the frames to come along.

    Hi Carl,
    Pasting from a Numbers table into Pages will paste a table (frames). There is no "Convert Table to Text" command in Pages 5.
    Paste into TextEdit. That will strip all formatting (including the table) and leave plain text. If your Numbers table had more than one column, the text will become Tab-Delimited. Before you paste into TextEdit, make sure the blank document is plain text (if you see Make Rich Text under the Format menu, you have a plain text document).
    Select All, Copy, then Paste into Pages.
    Regards,
    Ian.

    HOW CAN I IMPORT TEXT FROM MICROSOFT WORD TO THE WEB PAGE?

    Another method is tosave your Word document as an a web page.  Then open the htm file, copy the text and paste into an HTML snippet on your web page.  Resize to show all the document and publish. It will retain the style, font and alignment of the original Word document.

    How can I release text from a text box? I want the shape of the text box without the text in it.

    So all you need is to make a line around the text?
    For this you don't need to release the text box from the text. Just apply a stroke to it.

    how can i retrieve texts from an earlier back up without changing all the other settings on my iphone?

    You can't. Restoring from a backup is all or none.
    You can use a utility such as this one to extract the messages from the backup on your computer but you can't re-transfer the messages to the Messages app on your iPhone.

    Right-click on the document, select Get Info... In the lower half of the tall window that opens is a section labeled Open With (you may need to click on the disclosure triangle to see detail). Select from the pop-up list which app should open this document. If you want that to become the default condition, click on the Change All... button.

  • How can i copy text from web link title in safari

    Hi. How can i copy text to clipboard from web link title in safari in ios 7? Thank you
    Like this:
    http://photouploads.com/images/01wkw.jpg

    Once you have selected text, there will be blue circular buttons on the corners. Get the ones on the end and move them in towards the text that you want to copy. The problem that you seem to be facing where you are is that this text is a hyperlink. Because of that reason, you will have a difficult time tapping on the text without activating the link. I'm not sure you will be able to do that.

  • I can't paste text from external sources into Photoshop CC 2014.

    Hello everyone,
    Since a few days I'm not able to paste texts from external sources into Photoshop CC 2014.
    I never have problems with Photoshop CC before.
    I have the new iOS Yosemite installed in my macbook.
    It's really frustrating, can someone help please?

    I have basically the same setup, except on a Mac Mini. I am unable to reproduce your problem. Double check that you are copying the original text in the first place, and then make sure you are pasting into a text layer as you cannot paste into a regular Photoshop layer -- nothing will happen. Create a text layer by clicking on a regular layer with the text tool, the T in the tool box. The new layer will show up in the layers panel identified by the first line of the text.

  • HT4994 How can i transfer texts from sim to new iphone 4s?

    Hi,
    I've just got a new iPhone 4s.When I ordered it with O2 the sales lady told me i could keep all my texts from old samsung phone by transferring them onto the new sim and then from that onto the phone. I've got as far as putting the new sim in the phone but can't find how to get the texts from the sim onto the new phone.
    Can anyone help please?
    Many thanks.

    I don' t want them to get away with crap selling and now even more appalling customer service. And i don't want to lose my texts which are now on a microsim that won't tranfer to the iphone. I just want someone to say-yes we cocked and now we're going to fix this ( different phone, money off etc) but they are telling me there's nothing i can do except drive a 50mile round trip to one of their shops (but they won't pay for petrol). I'am about to explode!!!!

  • Pages crashed after pasting text from email - no longer able to access that document

    I was working on a Pages document on my iPad, and after pasting text from an email, Pages closed. As of then, I was no longer able to open or email the document, whether on Pages itself, on iCloud or on iTunes. I worked two hours on this important document and am not sure whether this can be recovered. Any support would be most appreciated.

    This is why I asked Apple to edit the entries as I showed above.
    Of course, it would be useful to edit also the entry available in the iOS area.
    Replace iWork for iOS by iWork (Keynote, Numbers, Pages) for iOS
    or better add three entries :
    Keynote for iOS
    Numbers for iOS
    Pages for iOS
    Having four entries pointing to the same forum would not be perfect but at least it would be clear and would be a viable scheme during the time required by engineers to find a way to split the existing iWork for iOS forum in three ones.
